We as Americans have become a bit spoiled and selfish. When given a donut we ask where is the hole?? instead of “my look at the beauty and richness of the donut” itself. This approach seems to feed a growing mistrust with everyone else on the planet. In Martial arts I would ask everyone to enjoy the art for what it is, a beautiful fulfilling art and refrain from questioning the whereabouts of the hole. It takes a lifetime to devour the entire donut, spending your time enjoying the art will be much more.
